An idea can blossom into something that can bring unspeakable joy or misery to millions. Every human endeavour no matter how small or great began with a simple idea. This philosophy is at the heart of TED whose mission is to spread ‘ideas worth spreading’ to the masses.

TED is a media organization devoted to spreading ideas. Owing to its Silicon Valley origins TED's early emphasis was on technology, entertainment and design,but it has since broadened its focus to include talks on many scientific, cultural, humanitarian and academic topics. Each Ted talk is given by an expert in their particular field. Past speakers include Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Gordon Brown, David Cameron, Billy Graham, Richard Dawkins, Bill Gates, Bono, Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, and many Nobel Prize winners.

TEDx is a group of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. These events are hyperlocal and take up issues that are relevant to the hosting community and are free from corporate, religious and political agenda. Each event is branded as a TEDx, where the x = independently organized TED event. At every TEDx event, TEDTalks videos and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and meaningful connections within the audience. Every TEDx conference remains true to the core philosophy of TED and celebrates Ideas worth spreading.


TEDxMEC is an independently organised TEDx conference which seeks to clone the TED experience at MEC. TEDxMEC has seen various speakers from all walks of life share their stories of greatness, failure, pain, motivation, perseverance, discipline, courage and compassion.

We aim to create a platform where people can share and express ideas and reflect positive changes in themselves and on the society as a whole. A sound mind is essential to appreciate well thought out ideas, and at TEDxMEC we have no shortage of that! Our audience consists of the best and brightest students, professionals and change makers from around Kerala. Rest assured,TEDxMEC will bring about positive changes in the lives of the audience and the society at large.


The only thing that is constant is change!

True growth lies in the willingness and propensity to adapt and overcome any hurdles in our path which propels us forward.

'Improvise, adapt, overcome' would simply be the real-life stories of the fledgeling Phoenix in each and every one of us, rising from the ashes and soaring ever so high.

So come join us, as we seek to explore the power of our resilience in the face of adversity and uncertainty through the eyes of our eminent speakers who will examine the various dimensions of this intriguing theme.
